If you are ready for fun in the sun, you will love today’s playful summer wedding captured by Tammy Swales. The bride is a designer and branded every inch of her wedding with cute details and paper goods. I love how they stayed true to themselves to really create an event that reflected them as a couple. From their pup joining in on the ceremony to the groom wearing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle boutonniere, they kept their day fun and relaxed.
Gregg and I met in high school, and we really wanted our wedding to capture our playful relationship, and the things that are important to us. We knew we wanted something outdoors, untraditional, delicious food, and to be surrounded by our favorite people.
Staying true to ourselves was so important. We valued everyone’s opinion, but wanted to make sure the day was a reflection of our relationship at the end of the day. Also SO important – HAVE FUN! This is such an exciting time, and it’s so important to remember what’s most important – your relationship!
My sister also made the jewelry that I wore, as well as her jewelry, and the jewelry both my Mother, and Mother-In-Law wore! While it isn’t quite handmade, our friends sang and played instruments at our ceremony, and it was incredible!
We created our save the dates (I even pulled those off the letterpress with my dear friend Amy of greengirlpress.com), invitations and programs. I hand lettered windows for our ceremony, and chalkboards for our reception with our menu and timeline on it. We even made our own photobooth for our reception – it was so fun to look at all the pictures after! I created all the signage for our day, and put them inside spray painted vintage frames. I had the most fun creating the welcome bags for the out of town guests to have waiting in their hotel rooms. We created a really fun “hangover helper” kit with a rubber stamp and kraft paper bag full of aspirin, sunblock, emercen-c and other essentials for a long weekend!
We loved having such wonderful people surrounding us to celebrate. It’s amazing how many people want to celebrate with you and travel from near and far just to be with you on your wedding day!
